ABSTRACT  If students are to continue with foreign language courses, there must be articulation between levels of instruction and coordination with other areas of study. College-level offerings which build on high school courses, such as Certificate of Proficiency programs and specialized courses (Business French, Russian Scientific Translation, etc.) have greatly aided articulation and coordination. The author also discusses the development of an information dissemination system to acquaint students, faculty, counselors, and parents with the choices available and the reasons for their existence. A tailor-made presentation, using slides and commentary, has facilitated a two-way system of communication: a situation where courses reflect needs and interests, and where school and community appreciate the many uses and applications of foreign language study in the real world.
